Self-proclaimed National Resistance Movement leader Miguna Miguna will jet back to the country on Tuesday January 7, 2020.

This follows a court order compelling the State to facilitate the lawyer’s re-entry in the country based on his identification through his national identity card or his withheld Kenyan passport.

In a statement issued by the Immigration Department on Monday, Director of Immigration Alexander Muteshi said they will facilitate Dr Miguna’s return back in the country.

“This is to confirm that in compliance with the court orders issued on December 14, 2018, the directorate will facilitate Dr Miguna's entry into Kenya.”

However, the lawyer faulted the Immigration department saying that the statement is a hopeless move following high court orders.

“Patriots, ignore the statement by Alexander Muteshi. It is their inept damage control after the High Court orders today,” said Miguna in a twit.

Miguna also twitted earlier that he did not want any preferential treatment.

“I want and demand all my rights and fundamental freedoms to be respected. I want my valid Kenyan passport back. I want court orders to be obeyed and complied with. I must enter Kenya unconditionally as a Kenyan,” he said.

Government spokesman Col. Oguna confirmed that President Uhuru Kenyatta made a pronouncement that Miguna is free to come back, and “that is still the government’s position."

Miguna was deported on March 29 2018, after swearing in opposition leader Raila Odinga on Januray 31, as the people’s president.
